Whenever I wanted to explain and/or introduce Ethereum to someone, I’m always struggling to explain the high-level concepts without first delving into Bitcoin, Blockhain, and Decentralization.
Here is the latest definition according to the Ethereum.org website:
Ethereum is a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications
Even from a developer’s perspective (ones that haven’t been exposed to crypto), the definition doesn’t really sound inspiring:
“Global and open source? Okay. Decentralized apps? Something peer to peer like Torrent?”
"Well, yeah, except you can run any kinds of programs on it. Also there is this programmable money like Bitcoin called Ether that is [insert tedious explanations here] "
“…Okay? Any current practical use cases?”
Which is a good question. What are the available and practical Ethereum projects that could spark their curiousity? Dai (and DeFi in general), and Augur are the first ones that come to my mind.
Do you guys have a practical method for introducing Ethereum to the masses? Perhaps multiple methods specifically tailored depending on the audiences?
